Seven’s heaven for fans of musical theatre
Seven Brides For Seven Brothers comes to Blackpool’s Grand Theatre on Monday.
Set in Oregon in 1850, Seven Brides for Seven Brothers is the story of Adam (Sam Attwater – Dancing on I ce champion, Hollyoaks, EastEnders), the eldest of seven brothers, who goes to town to get a wife.
He convinces Milly (Helena Blackman – How Do You Solve A Problem Like Maria?, Gypsy, The Wizard of Oz) to marry him that same day.
They return to his backwoods home and only then does she discover he has six brothers – all living in his cabin.
Milly sets out to reform the uncouth siblings, who are anxious to get wives of their own.
